over 315,000 afghan military personnel. it is their responsibility to step up to their defense of their nation. [applause] we went for al qaeda. we went for some of the late in. we accomplished that goal. we went for osama bin laden. we accomplished that goal. and now it is time. congressman ryan made very clear that governor romney has a very different view. although he says that he thinks we should get out in 2014, although he says that that makes sense, he says we should never have announced that and i might add, had not, the afghans would never step up, which should never have announced that and, when asked to guarantee you will get out, he says it depends. no, i'm serious. you heard it. it depends on the situation on the ground. it depends. well it depends on nothing other than the date as far as we're concerned. it is time for the afghans to take care of their own responsibilities. [applause] but like almost everything, it depends. it depends on which day you asking the question. [laughter] it depends. it depends on the circumstances. but it was not just on foreign policy
russian-made defense equipment. russia and syria denied there was any illegal cargo on board. in southern turkey, we get the latest. >> turkey allowed the jets to take off in the middle of the night and finished the journey. we had to wait all day to figure out just what it had discovered and confiscated on that plane. the prime minister says that they found in equipment and munitions made in russia and destined for damascus and syria's defense ministry. earlier in the day, they said that was not the case. the equipment on board was legal civilian communications equipment and should be returned immediately. what happened really proves one important point. turkey is now heavily involved in the conflict with syria. at home this country houses syrian refugees, rebels, and has intercepted a syrian jet and divide its own artillery across the border in this area. it has also got a diplomatic and political fight with russia. for the last year, they have been on opposite sides of the syrian conflict and they found that way of working to gather. -- together. >> the latest from southern turkey, a l
the department -- it's a part of defense. they are not enforcing with me to be doing. they claimed how great a system they have. the have a grid system on line but for people to physically go in and look for the ballot. that is great if they are internet savvy. by the time it hits people, it is too late, probably by september or october. in the civilian world, we can walk into a department of motor vehicles office or a social services office and we can even walk into recording station -- i've heard they have offered opportunities for people to vote. when you are on active duty in the military, there is no way to go unless they have those of us is set up. i don't mean an officer who has five other things to do. if they do collateral duty, it means they are not graded on performance of that extra duty. they need to allocate about money to get this accomplished which is a blatant dishonest statement. they have $75 million over the past three years allocated to them. $46 million a lot to get this set up in 2011 and they have managed to perfect their internet and voting? internet registration. th

and he is in a dead heat, as you know right now. if he plays prevent defense and i know his consultants are going to want him to be very, very careful and not make a mistake. that's how you will lose to barack obama. in the radio clip, my point was, he is going to come out swinging and he's going to come out maybe with a few punches below the belt. romney is going to do what he did in the first debate. that is, american voters are very interested in style, maybe even more style over substance and that was the first debate you've ever seen where barack obama was outstyled. body language, mitt romney looked much more presidential and come out mitt romney and continue to strike contrasts say that we are not a government with a country, we're a country with a government and empower the people in every way possible and point out that, you know, americans have lost 40% of their net worth under this administration. as you pointed out earlier, gas prices are twice as high. we have acts of war on anniversaries of 9/11 with no response other than appointing the task force to understand whether it
of defense in a coordinated effort, in reconnaissance. but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense into a police organization. we are using our military assets in a prudent way to deal with interdiction, and we've made some success in this area. seventy tons of cocaine have been stopped. but, you know, when you look at the drug problem and it is a tremendous problem, and there are no easy solutions to it it's a complicated problem, and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug-free america, which is a challenge and a goal of all of us. not only will we utilize national defense and the department of defense, but we've got to get on the demand side of the ledger; we've got to get to education. and education ought to begin at home, and it ought to be reinforced in our schools. and there's another thing that will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets, we will use military assets but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem is law enforcement. and
year, the department of defense has been working closely with other agencies to understand where are the lines of responsibility when it comes to cyber defense? where do we draw those lines? how do those responsibilities get executed? as part of that effort, the department is now finalizing the most comprehensive change to our rules of engagement in cyberspace in seven years. the new rules will make clear that the department has a responsibility not only to be thin d.o.d.'s networks -- to networks, but to defend the nation and our natural -- national interests in cyberspace. these new rules makes the department more agile and provides us with the ability to confront major threats quickly. to execute these responsibilities, we must have strong organizational structures in place. three years ago, the department took a major step forward by establishing the united states cyber command. under the leadership of a four start officer who also served as the director of the national security agency, cyber command has matured into what i believe it is a world-class organization. it has the
'hanlon, senior fellow with the 21st century defense initiative. two men better equipped for today i could not find. eugene, you have been a foreign correspondent in places as far afield as argentina and europe. you know the middle east. mitt romney says he wants to arm the syrian rebels with serious amounts of military hardware. i ask you, eugene, is america ready and willing to start a proxy war with iran on the road to damascus? >> well, good question, and first of all, i think you have to ask given the way romney has changed his policy in various areas, you have to ask is he serious about that. but if he is, that's the one sort of bit of news that came out of his speech today. it's not as if we're not already at least assisting in the arming of the rebels. there was an intelligence finding by president obama that said we could give covert aid essentially through our allies, through the saudis and the qataris, but we have discouraged them from providing heavy weapons because we're afraid those heavy weapons might fall into the hands of terrorists. so that is the one difference that i th
clear that for the first time, the president was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years and he obviously couldn't defend it. finally, piers, i thought one of the seminal moments in that debate was near the end, when jim lehrer talked about the lack of bipartisanship, the lack of sitting down together and averting this fiscal cliff that most americans know we're headed towards, and mitt talked about being governor of massachusetts, reaching across the aisle, having to negotiate, et cetera. the president's responses, sometimes you have to say no to people. is that, you know, and the fact is first two years, as mitt pointed out, first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. so i think those were -- that makes it probably one of the really more important debates in american history and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and
was put on the defensive as far as his record is concerned. and that's because of this bubble he's been in for the last four years, and he obviously couldn't defend it. and finally, piers, i thought one of the solemn moments in that debate was when jim lehrer talked about avoiding this cliff we're walking towards, and romney talked about walking across this abyss. the president's response was sometimes you have to say no to people? and mitt said the first two years of his presidency, they just rammed things through without a single republican vote. that makes it probably one of the more important debates in american history, and perhaps i'm exaggerating because i'm so happy. >> i can't blame you. i can't blame any republicans because it's been a very bruising few weeks for the republicans and mitt romney, and then suddenly everything seems to have turned on its head. you're in a unique position because you've debated against both mitt romney and barack obama. interestingly, romney is believed from the latest polls to have won 67% to 25%. when you went head to head with obama in 2008, th
later this morning is reverse some of those steep defense cuts that are part of that fiscal cliff that is looming at the end of the year. and here is one excerpt from the speech that we'll be hearing from mitt romney later on this morning. it goes after a chief theme of president obama. not only over his presidency but over his first campaign. here it is. it says, quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. soledad, yesterday some of his senior foreign policy advisers had a conference call with reporters. they were sort of laying out some presidencies of past that they think mitt romney might share some of these principles with. and the presidencies that they mentioned w
in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds, when our defense spending is being deeply cut off, when we have no trade agenda to speak of, and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. host: that was mitt romney yesterday. it garnered a headline in "usa today" -- how much of the speech was against president obama and what he's done and how much of it was laying on his own trajectory and agenda? guest: mostly in his role as a challenger, this is about a critique of the obama foreign- policy. that's a very common tactic by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked about hope is not a strategy. he's trying to emphasize his critique of obama as leading from behind, which was from an unnamed administration official at the end of a 8000 word new yorker magazine piece last year. it has become a staple of republican critics of the president's foreign-policy. there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. those are substantive. romney has called a rush of the -- called russia the number one geopolitical
11th attack. eyewitnesss told us it was a complex assault. the compound's first line of defense easily breached. according to one of the libyan guards who was stationed at the gate armed with only a radio, the assault happened simultaneously from three different directions. he says that he initially heard chanting growing increasingly louder and then suddenly the gunfire, the rocket-propelled grenades and heavy machine gunfire all began attacking the compound. this is where ambassador chris stephens slept, part of a small suite also meant to be a makeshift safe room. here on the floor between the bed and the chair is where cnn found the ambassador's journal. it is also the same room where the ambassador was located hours after the attack first began. separated by smoke from his security detail. the u.s. initially said the assault was the result of a demonstration that turned violent. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just
a sense, over 10 years, that's more than our entire defense budget. and you think closing loopholes and deductions for the well to do, you will not end up picking up the tab, then, governor romney's plan may work for you. but i think math, common sense and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. look we have tried this. we have tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney's talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton troyed the approach i am talking about. we created 23 million newions, we went from deficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so in some ways, we have some data on which approach is more like lie to create jobs and opportunity for americans. and i believe that the economy works best when middle-class families are getting tax breaks so they have money in their pockets and those of us who have done extraordinarily well
if president obama were to go on the defensive or on the offensive to mitt romney, how would that be perceived? would he have been thought of as the tough incumbent fighting back or thought of as the angry black man? this has come up as a narrative in part because on monday, before the debate, you had tucker carlson dropping this 2007 hampton speech as though it were prefacing the possibility of the president behaving that way so they could link it. let's take a look at what showed up on monday. >> when hurricane andrew struck expect you to come up with the, here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> so there's the president doing what so many of us, as african-americans do, he's code switching. he's speaking to an mask american audience, he has the fire. just two days before the debate this dropped and the narrative is somehow the president's an angry black
that, we now know what happened next. a statement was made available. his defense attorneys helped make that happen, given to a radio station and they played that very criticism that he was told not to speak. his attorneys say, hey, there's a first amendment free speech. he should be allowed to say what he wants to say and so he did. it's interesting to see in court whether this comes up in any way, shape or form. prosecutors have been wanting to cross examine him but usually that doesn't occur with this phase of allocation. back to you. >> susan cannedioti has been covering this story for us for a long time. thank you, susan. appreciate it. >>> gloria allred, victims' rights attorney. good to see you. >> thank you, soledad. >> my the victim is what he's saying and lists everybody else who, for some reason, would be conspiring against him. susan said part of the strat i didn't was he wasn't going to be allowed to say that in the courtroom so he's getting it out and getting it on the record first. how do you think that impacts what will happen in the courtroom today? >> well, i think tha

romney is a little more of a patriot and will handle foreign affairs and defense much better and i and i will say something hardly anybody says on the air any more. i'm very much prolife and i will always take the prolife candidate. >> shannon: foreign policy. how do you think a president romney would be different, better than president obama? >> i think after a clear terrorist al-qaeda inspired attack on the u.s. consulate that killed a u.s. ambassador he would not blame a filmmaker in cerritos, california. he would blame kade an al-qaede terrorists. i think he would stand up for america. >> shannon: on the issue of prolife. something we do cover a lot at fox, social issues even though there are some republicans who say stay away from it. not a winner for us. >> not a winner for me either. >> shannon: you are always a winner. >> shannon: what do you think it means for voters because there are voters who the social issues are what drive them to the ballot box or keep them home. >> a lot of that is going on. some voters say you are antiwomen because you are not' louing women to have unlim
no matter what the situation, what the score. and they keep coming. the packers' defense, although it proved from last year, still not good enough to hold that lead. packers' offense not clicking like it did. the colts won it late. it was a huge game for the team, a huge game for coach pagano hospitalized with leukemia receiving treatment for six weeks. they took him the game ball afterward. this is the kind of game that could lift this franchise. they've already got two wins this year. >> i'm a big believer you never start rookie quarterbacks, you sit them out a year and learn. luck stepping up. another guy that's been stepping up in washington, and that's rg3. but yesterday, boy. he was taught a lesson. >> yeah. >> as dan fouts said, the sidelines is your friend. >> guys have to know how to avoid contact. if you get hit enough times, you're eventually going to hurt. robert griffin iii has been defiant about i'll take whatever comes my way. he took one yesterday. >> that hurts. nice pink shoes. >> he didn't know the score, didn't know what quarter it was. the redskins are now being investig
look, if you didn't see it, i don't even know how to begin to explain it. in my defense, the apes wanted me to do that so i did it. the apes told me they wanted me to do it. how? i can't even begin to explain and i did not have to smear anything on myself. that's a plus. because really, it's all about maintaining one's dignity. that's it for us. thanks for watching. "early start" begins now. >>> jerry sandusky pleads his case from behind bars. a stunning audio tape just hours before he is sentenced this morning. >>> debate bound, mitt romney erasing president obama's lead. this is a new poll. a major shift on women voters as well. an an injection of enthusiasm. we go inside the numbers with four weeks left. >>> and biggest jump ever. one man, literally falling from the edge of outer space, 23 miles straight down on purpose. why? and will he make it? >> that is the question. why? what is the craziest thing you've ever done. >> it's not jumping 23 miles straight down from outer space. that's a high bar. >> i can't wait to talk to him and find out the why. >> it's nuts. good morning,
if the president's not on defense in some of these states. are we going to take a beating down ballot? that one debate performance turned the mood of republicans around? it's just one debate. there are two more debates to go. you heard governor romney, his tone and his tenor. senator obama stumbled many times back in 2008. he has stumbled here in that first debate in 2012. the test is, how do you recover? and governor romney is more confident and he's trying to address his weaknesses. gloria just noted, reaching for the middle. saying, i want to governor. i'm not going to lay out my entire tax plan, because i would have to negotiate with democrats a and republicans. trying to make it not just about big bird, but we can't keep borrowing from money to pay for things we can't have. trying to make that 47% go away. wolf, in my travels, in michigan a couple of weeks ago, and in ohio, middle class people who have struggled the past few years were deeply offended by that. so governor romney's smart to try to make it go away. >> i want everybody to stand by. we have much more to assess what's going on.
